It is sad that the most talented African music groups are breaking up. From recent the P-Square’s fight to Kenya’s talented gospel music group M.O.G and Uganda’s girl band Blu 3; they’ve all parted ways.
Well, here is a list of once upon a time celebrated groups that have split up.
Kenya’s celebrated girl band Tatuu had just started going international before their split. Remember the ‘Mvua yanyesha, jua la waka‘ song, they are the hitmakers of that hot track among others.
Mpasho can now confirm that some of the group members are abroad with families.
Here is one of their hit song Teso:
Ya Moto Band
Tanzanian boyband Ya Moto split early this year over irreconcilable differences. The Band which was made of Dogo Aslay, Maromboso, Enock Bella and Beka is said to have parted ways after Aslay started doing his own projects.
After going solo, the members have been competing in the Tanzanian music industry and are said to even be beefing.
